This made me a little teary-eyed at work earlier today and eventually gave me a tension headache that aspirin is only now driving off, but in the end, it's not a very difficult decision. I won't be playing Sindome any longer.
I could name any number if reasons why, from losing the spark, to needing to get more than three hours of sleep sometimes, to growing dissatisfied with things. But, in the end, that doesn't really matter.
Sindome used to be a game where, when I thought about it, I was happy, and excited for future adventures, and looking forwards to new ways my character may be shot, stabbed, betrayed and ruined. Thinking about past exploits was a fun pass-time.
Now, thinking about Sindome makes me feel angry, sad, and hopeless, and I have quite enough of that from real life. Thinking about recent events just makes me see red, not reminisce fondly.
So, this just isn't a way I want to spend my evenings any more.
I think the majority of you are great people and excellent roleplayers, and I've enjoyed the broad majority of my time here. I wish you all the best.
Should you like to contact me to play some different games together or just chat, I can be found as DMCurt on Steam, and my Skype address is Curtis Barnes. The one with the profile picture being the same little knight that I use here.
